"Jon-Emile's recipe for savouring mechanical heart-lung interaction is infused with equal parts Canadian melancholy & Scandinavian pedagogical philosophy; it's a splendid formula. He's also an excellent dog-walker."

To afford the reader and participant in these on-line lectures with an appreciation for cardiopulmonary interaction in the intensive care unit.
The free, animated lectures on this website are supplements to the chapters in the textbook.
A screenshot from the lecture for chapter 4 [right] demonstrates the transposition of the Campbell Diagram with the Guyton Diagram. By combining these two helpful, graphical analyses, a full understanding of heart-lung physiology can be achieved!
As above, there will be a chapter for each lecture. The animated lectures on this site will serve as a supplement for the published volume. Encouragement & guidance from Drs. Ruoss [Stanford] & Gropper [UCSF] helped bring this project to fruition.
Jon-Emile S. Kenny M.D.
Dr. Kenny is alive and well, and living in Toronto; he earned a B.Sc. at the University of British Columbia and his M.D. at the University of Toronto. He completed his residency and chief residency in general internal medicine at NYU-Langone Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in pulmonary & critical care medicine at Stanford University Medical Center. In June 2017, he completed a Master's Degree in Medical Education at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
He is honoured to learn that the Cleveland Clinic Pulmonary & Critical Care fellowship has integrated parts of this website into their curriculum.
The first 4 chapters will cover basic physiology and pathophysiology with an emphasis on the Campbell and Guyton Diagrams.
The remaining 4 chapters will focus on clinically-relevant topics in the intensive care unit; the discussions will be largely drawn from the physiology covered in the first half of the textbook.
Heart-lung.org will provide a comprehensive, on-line tutorial in cardiovascular and respiratory physiology for the interested medical student, resident and fellow.
